All schools in Pembrokeshire are served by one of a team of Education Welfare Officers who provide a link between the school family, the Education Service and the families of pupils.
The Education Welfare Officers main task is to encourage regular attendance at school. The Education Welfare Officer is able to offer advice and information to assist parents with their role in ensuring their child attends school. They can also advise about other support services when there is an identified problem restricting a pupil's access to education, or in relation to social and welfare issues.
The service can also give advice on the restrictions and regulations relating to the employment of children of compulsory school age.
The Inclusion Service Education Welfare Officers can provide information booklets to parents regarding school attendance issues and their responsibilities to ensure regular school attendance according to the law; the Pupil Support Officers assist parents to fulfil this role.
The Education Welfare Officers can be accessed via the school or the Education Service at County Hall.
